Campus & City
Leipzig is one of the most dynamic and vibrant cities in Europe. The Guardian recently described Leipzig as „Germany’s boom-town” and the German newspaper Die Welt confirmed it, calling Leipzig “the city overtaking the rest of the republic”. Located at the crossroads of the historic European trade routes, Leipzig prides itself on its 1,000-year tradition of commercial vitality and on its reputation as a meeting place for science and arts. Beyond its modern infrastructure, what stands out about Germany's fastest growing city is the rapidly expanding economy with its world-famous brands such as Porsche, BMW, DHL and Amazon.
Leipzig is located in the heart of Europe and well-connected by road, rail and air. Berlin, the capital of Germany, is only an hour-long train ride away and the financial capital Frankfurt can be reached within three hours. Major European cities like London, Paris or Prague are also in close proximity.
